  • Microsoft to Publish PUBG on Xbox One - Release Date Reconfirmed

He also added that the partnership is beneficial to both parties as Microsoft would speed up the delivery of PUBG to console players thus further boosting its popularity. However, the press release reiterates that the game will appear on Xbox One by the end of 2017.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a game that has taken the world of Battle Royale shooters by storm.

During their presentation at Gamescom 2017, Xbox showed off a new trailer for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, in which it was confirmed that Xbox One players can get their hands on the gem later this year. Of course, this shouldn't be too hard to do considering Bluehole and Microsoft are working together to make the console version, meaning that there are plenty of resources to work with. That's an astounding figure for a game that's only been available for a few months and remains in early access.

According to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds executive producer Chang Han Kim, developer Bluehole decided on "on extending [its] partnership with Microsoft", having discovered that it shares a "vision" with Microsoft. If the title stays restricted to Xbox One, the company will reap some substantial benefits. Additional information about custom games will be announced after Early Access launch.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has a Microsoft publishing deal, but may or may not be an exclusive.

Loads of Localization: Launching into twelve languages (English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Arabic) with translations coming directly from the community.
